Default 2012 UFC Finest Jumbo Threads Autograph Complete 30 Card Set -- Pretty Rare To See

HUGE Thank you to Brian Whelan who found me the last of the 30 cards I needed to complete the set. Topps has not released print runs for these cards, but I can tell you with confidence that these are NOT all created equal. Since the release I have only seen three Akiyama's pop up, and have seen very few of a couple others as well. I'm not sure there is anyone else with this complete set right now so I figured I would post mine so everyone could have a look. Really hoping Topps can get on Aldo and get him to sign his cards sometime soon. 30 is a nice even number, would be a shame to be sent a replacement.

Good luck! Akiyama is the hardest to find. Only 3 or 4 have surfaced that I know of since the set came out. Topps won't release print runs on these cards, which makes me believe that they are defiantly not all equal. Some awesome swatches too. Makes me want to go start upgrading some of mine.

According to the odds,

Roughly 1000 cases produced.

Jumbo Threads Auto are inserted 1:22 6-pack mini box.

About 24.7 produced per card, provided no short print exist.

25 produced per card sounds right, same as 2011. They are just not numbered.

I try to focus my set on multi-color patch only. Has anyone seen Anderson or BJ with multi color patch? Thanks

I promise you there aren't 25 of each, unless they simply front loaded the product with certain fighters. I've followed this set very closely since it came out, and have seen 15-20 of most of the fighters in the set, while only seeing 4 Akiyamas surface and only 5 or 6 of a couple other fighters as well. I've asked topps numerous times on twitter and at nationals for print runs and they have said they won't release them, and I think the reason why is because they aren't equal. Why so secretive about it if its just 25 across the board?

I remember a 2 color Anderson around release time, and although it doesn't look it my BJ swatch is actually multicolored... It's all Grey and blues
